Chapman Grove Wines is a small privately owned company dedicated to crafting Fine Wines
from the Margaret River region of Western Australia.
As a wine retailer and lover of fine wines, Ron Fraser recognised many years ago the potential of the Margaret River region to produce great wine. He decided in 1987 that this was where he wanted to make world-class wine and build a wine company which would be recognised as one of the major producers in the Margaret River region creating exceptional wines.
After a long search for the perfect location, Ron finally found a vineyard that he believed would produce the premium-quality grapes he needed to support his vision and planting commenced in the newly established Chapman Grove Vineyard in 1997. After selling fruit to the local wineries for the first five vintages, Ron felt that the vines were mature enough to start to produce high-quality fruit. With Winemaker Bruce Dukes, he set out to craft the unique wines that he felt the vineyard was capable of producing.
In 2006 the first Chapman Grove wines were released onto the market. Over a decade later it is clear that Ron’s ambitions have been more than met. After gaining entry into James Halliday’s Wine Companion in 2009, in three short years Chapman Grove has now been elevated to a 5 Red Star Rated Winery, and has won numerous awards at wine shows including most recently three trophies and four gold medals at the prestigious Sydney Royal Wine Show in 2011 making it the Most Outstanding WA Producer at the show.
